Ox-Bow Residency

I’m headed to Ox-Bow for a 2-week residency (don’t worry, I have all my classes covered!). I’ll be working on some projects for the upcoming Faculty Biennale at the Sleeth Gallery. I’ll post some pics once I get settled.

UPDATE: Due to a family emergency, this residency has been postponed until Fall 2015. I would like to sincerely thank Ox-Bow for their kindness and flexibility!
